The Bee-less Honey

Since bees are on a great decline, 'bee-less honey' will soon be the next famous 'organic' thing that might even bring the Queen Bee to her knees.

I found this 'bee-less honey' recipe online.


1. 2 1/2 cups of water
2. 10 cups of white sugar
3. 1 teaspoon of alum
4. 18 organic red clover blossoms
5. 36 organic white clover blossoms
6. 18 organic rose petals


1. Pour water, sugar and alum into a large saucepan.

2. Place it over high heat and bring to a boil.

3. Reduce heat to medium and boil for 10 minutes.

4. Remove the syrup from the heat and stir in flowers.

5. Allow to steep for 10 minutes, stir and strain into storage jars.

If you try this recipe, do drop by and leave a comment on how it tastes.


  1. Alum and white sugar? Are you trying to kill people?

    1. HAHAHAHAHA! It's one of the top 10 organic trends which is currently trending now.....

    2. All forms of alum can cause irritation of the skin and mucous membranes. Breathing alum can cause lung damage. Aluminum also may attack lung tissue. Because it's a salt, eating massive amounts of alum can make you sick. Usually ingesting alum will make you vomit, but if you could keep it down, the alum could upset the ionic equilibrium in your bloodstream, just like overdosing on any other electrolyte. However, the primary concern with alum is long term exposure to low levels of the chemical. Aluminum, from your diet or healthcare product, can cause degeneration of nervous system tissue. It is possible exposure to aluminum could lead to an increased risk of certain cancers, brain plaques or Alzheimer's Disease.

  2. Aluminum? Someone thinks aluminum should be eaten when so many people are refusing to use deodorants because they are made with aluminum? No one should be eating aluminum. It's incredibly toxic. Besides the sugar...who in their right mind would replace honey with white, processed sugar?
